County Commissioner Austin Aber
erombie Suggests Change in Office
of County Supervisor.
Mr. Austin Abercrombie, of Youngs
township, a member of the county
road commission, was in the city on
business Saturday and handed to a
representative of The Advertiser a
copy of a letter which he had address
od to the county delegation in the leg
islature, making suggestions intended
to increase the efficiency in the office
of the count supervisor. Mr. Aber
crombie would have a clerk in the
supervisor's office at least five days in
the week to attend to the minor de
tails which now take up so much time
of the supervisor so that the super
visor could give more time to the
study and supervision of road work.
Mr. Abercrombie also makes- the
suggestion that the county commis
sioners be given 'more power and bot
ter pay, so that they too could accom
plish more and be Justified in giving
more attention to the roads.
The letter of Mr. Abercrombie to
the delegation is as follows:
Laurens, S. C.,
Jan. 21, 1914.
To the Honorable Delegation from
Laurens County in the General As
sombly of S'outh Carolina.
I would ask the privilege of making
some suggestions on some needed leg
islation as I see it, in my line of busi
ness affecting your county.
First: I think it would be to the
hest interest of the county and to the
people if the clerk in the supervisor's
office were paid enough of salary, say
an increase of $15 per month, making
$40 per month, to justify him to stay
there at least five days in the week,
which would relieve the supervisor
of staying there so close and enable
him to be out on the road the greater
portion of his time. The book keep
ing and other matters pertaining to
he business could be handled by the
clerk, parties could leave messages
for the supervisor with him, and the
matter handled often through the
malls. The people of our county are
making great demand for the better
ient of roads and no person can run
; business successfully without giving
it at least one half his time. If the
above were put into effect, the super
visor could do this, look after other
outside matters and be in his office
on Saturdays, salesday and at meet
ings of the board.
Another 'suggestion is in reference
All Coat 5
One Lot Wome
to .the county commissioners. The
power and pay of came are .very un
satisfactory at present.. I think the
law ought to 'provide enough pay to
enable each commissioner to spend a
good portion of his time with the
chain gang when in his section of the
county and visit it occasionally all
along during the year. As the law now
stands, the county commissioners are
elected by the people to do and ex
pected to do something, when as a mat
ter of fact, they have virtually no
power vested in them to do anything,
which makes it very unsatisfactory
for the ofilcers and the people. I
think the commissioners should be
paid by the day for a certain number
of days services actually rendered.
It is from no personal motive that
I make this suggestion, as I do ndt
want the pay raised for me, but make
it to start at the expiration of the
terms of the present commissioners.
My motive for 'making these sugges
tions is purely for the interest of the
Iloping that you will give these sug
gestions such consideration as they
merit, and with best wishes, I am,
